Planishek Properties – Partners in Planning Your Dream Home

So much more than walls and windows, Tom and Amanda Planishek of Planishek Properties know home is a place like no other. Both agree houses are a steadfast background in an ever-changing environment – and, to quote Amanda, “a place that provides family comfort and safety, a place that sees the good, the bad and everything in-between.”

Their business provides high quality, custom-built homes to inspire family adventure – with personal inspiration that often springs forward from their own family life and what it means to be “home.” With more than 20 years of experience in construction and development, Amanda shares how Planishek Properties has evolved.

“We established the business in 2019, however, Tom and I have been building custom homes together since 2012, and he has been in the commercial construction industry since 2005. We’ve worked on some really large projects, and in the past, building homes had always been a hobby business for us,” she adds. “We spent time doing our own projects along with builds for friends.”

Over time, the pair developed a passion for building custom homes and helping other families achieve their vision – and this year, Tom decided to leave the chaos of the corporate world, and he and Amanda made Planishek Properties their full-time gig!

Get to know this full-service property development company based in Denver, NC, and you’ll discover their desire to be true partners with their clients.

“For our homes, we love creating features that would be enjoyed by our own family,” Amanda says. “Having a large dog, three kids and a live-in brother gives us lots of perspective. For us, a high level of activity is important, as we like the family to be off the video games and doing things together. The lake has been an extension of our ‘home,’ and we enjoy the countless activities and venues it offers. Most importantly, we love the relaxed nature and fun people we meet along the way.”

“In the ever-changing business and social climate, we are seeing that many of our clients’ daily routines occur in their home,” adds Tom. “It’s pretty common now for both husband and wife to work from home, and argue over who gets ‘the office’ and who works at the dining room table. Or, you may work out five days a week but not have time to drive to the gym. We’re also seeing a comeback in sculleries as many of our clients like to have their kitchens clean when entertaining – leaving prep-work done behind the scenes. Finally, we’re also seeing a lot more ‘generational homes’ that require dual master suites.” 

With so many factors involved in envisioning someone’s “forever” home, that initial conversation with a prospective client is crucial – learning how a space would be used and establishing a realistic total project target budget and wish-list (with some room for last-minute add-ons, of course). The Planishek team leads you through the process, keeping the road to home as smooth as possible.

“Amanda and our design partners keep up to date with current trends from around the country, and we do whatever we can to bring those materials from other regions, even if those materials are not readily available in Charlotte,” shares Tom. “On the construction side, our trade partner relationships with both small and large providers result in very competitive pricing and the ability to procure unique items. From heavy timbers to custom ornamental metals, we can get it!”

Planishek Properties also takes pride in their ability to maintain scheduling, as well as perform the entire construction process from land acquisition through interior design. They offer financing through a strong relationship with Pinnacle Financial Partners, and a 10-year structural warranty backed by Zurich – something you don’t always see from small local builders.

Client referrals are always the best accolades!

“Our experience with Planishek Properties was amazing throughout the entire process! Everything from home design to finishing touches was smooth. Planishek Properties provided extreme attention to detail in all areas of our new home. They offered suggestions and advice when we asked. We are so grateful for the top-of-the-line trade partners who constructed our home with superior workmanship. Everyone worked in an efficient manner and was quick with communication. We are forever thankful that they turned our dream on paper into a beautiful reality.”

“My wife and I purchased our home during the summer of 2023. It was our first custom home, and we are extremely satisfied with the care and attention that went into design, build and finishes. These touches, in addition to the location, will help ensure the value of the property continues to rise going forward.”
